Program Design

The Professional Clear Administrative Services Credential (formally Tier II) is job embedded, relevant to the day-to-day work of the beginning administrator, and provides flexibility in the options for meeting goals and professional development requirements.

Our Program: One of only three such programs in the state, the Professional Clear Administrative Services Credential program is designed to facilitate the on-site reflective coaching induction and professional development of beginning administrators and fulfill the CCTC requirements for the Professional Clear Administrative Services Credential. The program utilizes a reflective coaching format that includes a minimum of 20 hours of on-site coaching by a university fieldwork coach/supervisor. The 6 unit, two semester program is centered on the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSELs) and supports participants in clarifying and achieving the actual goals and tasks confronting them as beginning administrators.

Required courses:

  • GED796 Induction, Mentoring, and Advanced fieldwork (3 units)
  • GED797 Professional Development and Assessment (3 units)

This program is ideal for:

  • Public and private school administrators (site-based or district office) who have completed two full years as an administrator.
  • New or experienced administrators who have already cleared their credential but want to hone their leadership skills through on-site reflective coaching.
